On NBC’s Parks and Recreation, Chris Pratt plays the lovably oafish Andy Dwyer, who isn’t exactly known for his incredible physical prowess. However, in next year’s highly-anticipated (eventual) Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt plays Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord, who is a half-alien/half-human intergalactic warrior who fights intergalactic forces that like to destroy planets and enslave entire species, so he presumably needed to be in a little better shape for this role.
As you can see in the photo above that Pratt posted to his Instagram yesterday, he’s doing a pretty good job of shedding his Dwyer pounds. While Pratt admits the selfie is “kinda douchey,” I think the rest of us fellas are more concerned that it’s making us look bad. But not his Parks and Rec co-star Lowe, as he’s just worried that they may have lost their Andy.

Meanwhile, Jim O’Heir, who plays Jerry on Parks and Rec, thinks they may have been separated at birth…
